Helping you make sense of the Irish energy sector
Cornwall Insight Ireland have developed “Route to RESS”, a package of services that deploys insight to help participants navigate the auction process. The scheme is vital in achieving 70% renewables by 2030, delivering up to 3TWh in the first auction is due to be held in June 2020. Given the high level of competition anticipated in the first RESS auction, a thorough understanding of the auction process is essential.
In order to achieve 70% renewables by 2030 as outlined in the Climate Action Plan, up to 30TWh of renewable generation will be required by the end of the decade. To deliver this, the Irish government has developed the Renewable Energy Subsidy Scheme (RESS), which represents a big change for Ireland’s renewable industry, as it moves away from a fixed subsidy (REFIT scheme) to a competitive auction approach. The RESS scheme is vital in achieving 70% renewables by 2030, and the first auction, due to be held in June 2020 will deliver up to 3TWh of renewable energy.
Given the high level of competition anticipated in the first RESS auction, a thorough understanding of the auction process is essential. Our Route to RESS service deploys insight to help participants navigate through the auction process. It comprises a set of interconnected and high value insights, including; A how-to webinar, prequalification forum, route to market classroom training, networking event, auction guide, webinar and results forum. With new entrants, strong competition likely and key details of the RESS scheme still in the air, we will work with you to provide the key insights and understanding to succeed in the auction.
